Ready to stimulate your brain? Here is Ranker's thoughtful list of the best songs about thinking. Many musicians have put their thoughts into words with fantastic songs about thinking. There are great rock songs about thinking, good country songs about thinking, and everything in between. Many of the top thinking songs are still about love, but some of the greatest thinking songs are actually about clearing your mind.

“Don't Think Twice, It's All Right” by Bob Dylan is a bittersweet love song about a failed relationship. “You’re the reason I’m travelin’ on/Don’t think twice, it’s all right,” Dylan sings on this The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan classic. Frank Ocean became a superstar overnight after he released his track, “Thinkin Bout You” in 2012. The Beatles had a hit with “Think for Yourself” in 1965 and again in 1968 for the Yellow Submarine soundtrack.

Aretha Franklin compelled her man to think about how he was treating her on her track, “Think.” Other great songs about thinking that appear on this list include Kenny Chesney's “She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy” and “Da Ya Think I'm Sexy” by Rod Stewart.
